Buy the Antiqued Train 1 oz Silver Hobo Nickel while they last.

Add an innovative twist on the classic Buffalo Nickel design to your collection of silver bullion with the Train 1 oz Silver Antiqued Hobo Nickel. These antiqued hobo nickels are produced by the Osborne Mint, contain one troy ounce of .999 fine silver, and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

The hobo nickel is an art form where the design of small-denomination coins is modified. This kind of alteration dates back to the 1750, but increased in popularity early in the 1900s with the introduction of Fraser’s Buffalo Nickel. MrThe has sculpted 5 hobo nickel designs on 1 oz silver buffalo rounds with a combination of contemporary tools and traditional techniques. Each design can be purchased as a 1 oz proof-like round, 1 oz antiqued round, and 5 oz antiqued round.

The obverse of this silver round pays homage to the hobos' favored method of transport, and depicts a steam engine thundering down the tracks. Delicately sculpted steam pours from the smokestack and wheels. A rustic railroad tie design around the rim and the inscriptions “LIBERTY”, and “1913” also feature on the obverse.

The reverse design of this 1 oz silver coin depicts a classic hobo. His bag is made from the buffalo's hump, and his stick from the line above the denomination. The reverse also features the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, and “FIVE CENTS”.

The hobo nickels also feature an edge mark of the coin number.

These 1 oz silver rounds were designed by Paolo Curcio, also known as MrThe. MrThe is a classically trained artist that studied at the Academy of Fine Arts. Based in Spain, MrThe creates some of the most innovative and breathtaking hobo nickels currently available. Enjoy this cultural art form, and add a hobo nickel 1 oz silver round to your collection of silver bullion.
